Montenegro's Markovic Shrugs Off Trump Shoving Incident At NATO Summit

Montenegro's Markovic Shrugs Off Trump Shoving Incident At NATO Summit

In Brussels, Mr Trump sat in a morning meeting with top European Union leaders, where one emerged to say there were deep differences between them about whether the West can work with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

KEITH: NATO countries have agreed to spend 2 percent of GDP on their own national defense, although they aren't all doing it.

Back home in America, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) seemed embarrassed by Trump's demands and scolded him for it.

Numerous nations, Trump said, owe "massive" amounts of money from previous years.

"I'm not 100 percent sure that we can say today - "we" means Mr President and myself - that we have a common position, common opinion about Russian Federation", former Polish prime minister Tusk said.

President Trump attends his first G7 summit in Sicily today amid a cloud of uncertainty about where he and the United States will stand on policy issues from climate change to trade - after a bombshell North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting where he stunned allies with demands for them to start paying their share.

Moreover, the White House had sent recent signals that the United States would stay in NATO's mutual defense pact, known as Article 5, which had been invoked just once before: after the terror attack of September 11, 2001.

Praise was always going to be in short supply after Trump's sharp election campaign criticism of the alliance, which he blamed for not doing more to combat terrorism.

Trump scolds NATO leaders, tells them to spend more for military
And at home , one Democratic leader called the remarks "condescending" and an "embarrassment", while Republican Sen. Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright tweeted that the USA cannot " add an asterisk" to Article 5.

Fellow NATO leaders occasionally exchanged awkward looks with each other during the president's lecture, which occurred at an event commemorating the fall of the Berlin Wall and the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

In a presidential statement issued while Mr Trump was at the ceremony, he called the Manchester leaks "deeply troubling", vowed to "get to the bottom" of them and called for a full investigation by U.S. agencies, one that could end with prosecutions, he said. Trump did mention Article 5 in his speech - it was unavoidable, given the memorial he was unveiling. The US president has been very clear on his commitment to Nato's collective defense clause, but also "on his expectations", he said.

Donald Trump's first trip overseas as president has already taken him to Saudi Arabia, Israel, the West Bank of the Palestinian territories, the Vatican before arriving in Brussels.

But while the Europeans greeted Trump warily, tens of thousands gathered in Berlin to hear his predecessor and German Chancellor Angela Merkel discuss democracy and global responsibility at a Protestant conference as the country marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.
